Recessed Lighting Family Room Layout Advice!

12 years ago

Hi there,

I am installing recessed lighting in our family room (18' x 14', 8ft high).

I have looked around for what size and quantity I should install but recommendations vary. My "gut feel" is shown below in the diagram. 2 x 4" lights in front of the fireplace and 4 x 5" lights for general lighting.

Do you think this will be sufficient? We do have a couple of floor lamps that we use next to the chairs for ambience.

I know the layout isn't optimal for the TV, but that's all we could find that will work!

Thanks for any suggestions.
